Many strong riders remained outside Superbike World Championship for 2019 season, but fortunately they won’t be out of job, as they’re all finding a seat in other championships. One of them is Román Ramos: the Spaniard has been signed by Héctor Faubel‘s Fau55 El Señor de las Bolsas Team to race in Spanish CEV RFME Superbike Championship, where the 28-year-old from Santander will ride a Yamaha YZF-R1.
Ramos will debut in the championship organized and promoted by RFME (the Royal Spanish Motorcycling Federation) after four seasons spent in World Superbike with Go Eleven Kawasaki. The rider from the Spanish antonomous community of Cantabria scored many remarkable results despite riding a private Ninja machine and the highest points he reached in WorldSBK are two seven-place finishes (in 2015 Imola Race 2 and 2017 Assen Race 1), some of the many top-10 results scored by Ramos during his WorldSBK time. 2018 season was the toughest one experienced by Ramos in Superbike World Championship, as the Spaniard collected just 64 points (his worst final score in WorldSBK) after suffering the rpm limitation imposed by Dorna to Kawasaki teams. Previously, Ramos was CEV Moto2 Champion in 2013 and contested the full Moto2 World Championship the year after.
After many years at the maximum level of motorcycle racing, Ramos will start a new part of his career with Fau55 El Señor de las Bolsas Team, Spanish squad managed by former 125cc, 250cc and Moto2 World Championship competitor Héctor Faubel.
